Several of you have been waiting for this…and the time has FINALLY come! Without further ado….here is the very first episode of Tokimeki Radio! 🎊 🎉🎊
Since starting this blog, I’ve met a lot of wonderful people who are as passionate about otome games through comments in my blog and following through several conversations on otome games in Twitter, and that’s been GREAT! 🎵 Those conversations motivated me to be a bit more involved and create something that’s not really common: a podcast centered on otome games. This is a VERY NEW world for me, because I have not made anything of the sort before, so I’m wandering into unknown territory. However, I feel like I’d like to talk to even more people about these lovely games that we all enjoy a whole lot, and perhaps this will have farther reach when paired with my musings on this blog. With with my partner in crime, Verde, we will talk about otome games released all over the world along with any news-worthy topic that might be circling around the community at the moment. This is just the beginning of a very new road for both me and Verde, so we hope you enjoy this episode of Tokimeki Radio! ✨ Feel free to leave any feedback or suggestions below on what you’d like to hear in future episodes.
On this first episode, we talked about our humble beginnings with the visual novel and otome game genres that we grew to love today. We also talked about otome games released on February, which include English games, Japanese games, and a very special Chinese game! Also on this show we discussed the much-talked about Beastmaster and Prince Kickstarter Campaign and our thoughts on it. And finally, we talked about game we’ve recently played to completion along with games we’re currently playing (with the bonus topic of anime based on otome games!). If any of that sounds like your cup of tea, please give our show a listen! Thank you all so much for your support. 💖

Several things to note, this was recorded on February 22nd, so some info on the Beastmaster Kickstarter campaign and on the Love in the Glen Steam Greenlight is just a bit outdated. I also had to deal with podcasting HELL because of a really nasty mishap I had to fix…but from that error, a lot was learned for future episodes, so I’m all the better for it! As always, thank you all so much for listening, and please look forward to the next episode coming soon on March!
Until next time, see ya! ✨
